2009 News & Events
EVENTS DETAILS & INFORMATION
This year, CCLL participated in and hosted different events along with its two major programs, AmeriCorps and Project SHINE. We would like to thank all AC and SHINE members, faculty members, and community partners for their support and dedication in service-learning!
THE CARNEGIE FOUNDATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF TEACHING RECOGNIZES SJSU FOR ITS CURRICULAR
ENGAGEMENT, OUTREACH, AND PARTNERSHIPS
San Jose State University was selected for the 2008 Community Engagement Classification in the category of Curricular Engagement and Outreach and Partnerships. SJSU's application documented excellent alignment among mission, culture, leadership, resources, and practices that support dynamic and noteworthy community engagement, and was able to respond to the classification framework with both descriptions and examples of exemplary institutionalized practices of community engagement. SJSU is one of 119 institutions that will now be added to the Community Engagement Classification completed in 2006, bringing the total to almost 200.
CCLL is proud to have been part of the Carnegie Application writing process by documenting all service-learning courses offered on campus, the number of service-learning hours completed by SJSU students, and the partnership the Center has maintained and cultivated through out the years with non-profits in the Bay Area.
We wouldn't have done it without the great effort and commitment from SJSU students, faculty members, and community partners! Go service-learners!
Visiting U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer's Representative
Students Latu Tapaatoutai and Roberto Garcia-Ceballos met with Jennifer Tang, a San Francisco field representative for Senator Boxer. The group discussed SJSU's many service activities including Service Nation, the Gulf Coast Civic Works Project, and CCLL. Micheal Fallon, the Center's associate director and Sociology Lecturer, accompanied the students, who urged Boxer to support the proposed federal Serve America Act.
Share the Magic - Recognition
CCLL's community partner, Third Street Community Center, celebrated its 9th Annual Share the Magic fundraiser on Friday, October 10th at 6pm at the Tech Museum of Innovation, a long time partner of Third Street.
Every year, TSCC recognizes someone who has contributed to its programs. This year, CCLL Associate Director Michael Fallon was recognized as one of TSCC's educator supporters. Congratulations, Michael!
